Our client is a long established Leeds Printers who are now at a stage of their company’s growth where the time has come to appoint a General Manager. As, like many SME printers a General Manager has to have a pretty much “hands on management style” we are happy to accept applications from Production and Operations Managers/ Directors but it must be a candidate with at least ten (recent) years experience in Print. A candidate who has a production management track record will be considered as a better candidate than someone who a great sales record for this job.

The ideal candidate will have experience of managing a 10 to 30 employee sized business. Any more than that, and our client would consider you to be unsuitable.
